Epson Inkjet and PrintOn DVD/CDs

Epson Stylus Photo R230I bought an Epson inkjet printer on 10th March this year. (see previous blog entry) The sole purpose for that Epson inkjet printer (Stylus Photo R230) was to print on CD/DVDs (direct print). And I did use it for such task, of course I tested it out on photo printing and others, the quality on photo paper is impressive. Without a doubt, the colour was bright.

Since I bought the EyeTV, a TV capture card for Mac, I've been recording TV shows. (Before you ask, I don't use P2P or BitTorrent for leeching TV shows. I record TV shows myself or buy them from iTunes Store.)

Here's a photo of DVD prints I made with Epson Stylus Photo R230.

The blank CD and DVD media I use are TDK PrintOn DVD and TDK PrintOn CD-R.

If you want to make an impressive CD/DVD, you need to give it a good labelling. Using labelling kit (stickers) is yesterday's technology and it's hard to make it look nice. The better solution (for home users): print directly on CD/DVD media or use LightScribe media.
To print on CD/DVD directly, you will need to get media that is printable such as TDK's PrintOn media and a capable inkjet printer. Alternatively, you can get a special LightScribe discs which requires special LightScribe-enabled optical drive (burners).

Epson Stylus Photo R230 uses 6 inks, and last week, I run out yellow ink. I had to get the ink. It turns out that I am not the person that would use refills, so I searched for the cheapest genuine Epson ink. The average street price is AU$19 to AU$22 per ink, but I found a great deal... 6 colours for AU$96, plus a bonus Epson Glossy Photo Paper (50 pack). It seems to be a great deal for me, since all other colours are running low.

Epson inks T0491 - T0496

I don't think I will use the bonus Photo Paper, but I guess I can sell it on eBay.

[…] The court said that copy protection violates private copying rights. (Hm. That last sentence just made me realize the oxymoronic nature of “copyright”, which is really “copynoright”. :P) This contradicts the European Copyright Directive, and the movie studio is likely to appeal. […]
